Slow Cooker Mondays: Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal


Oooooooooooo, baby! This sounds yummy and easy. If the thought of waking up to oatmeal gets your taste buds going then check out Trish’s recipe for Slow Cooker Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal.


  • 8 cups water
  • 2 cups steel-cut oats, (see Ingredient note)
  • 2 Granny smith apples, peeled chopped
  • 1/4 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 TEASP cinnamon
  • 1/2 TEASP vanilla extract


  1. Combine all ingredients in 5- or 6-quart slow cooker.
  2. Turn heat to low.
  3. Put the lid on and cook until the oats are tender and the porridge is creamy, 7 to 8 hours.

Steel-cut oats, sometimes labeled “Irish oatmeal,” look like small pebbles. They are toasted oat groats—the oat kernel that has been removed from the husk that have been cut in 2 or 3 pieces. Do not substitute regular rolled oats, which have a shorter cooking time, in the slow-cooker oatmeal recipe.
